The industry leading performance DJ controller!

Mixing with Serato
Sold as a complete system that includes the controller and new Serato DJ software, the Pioneer DDJ-SX provides additional features to provide direct, tactile control of the software’s capabilities, which include a four deck sampler function, dual deck control, slip mode, FX mode and more. Pioneer has also implemented larger jog wheels for precise mixing and scratching, multiple inputs for expandability, and 4-channel mixing flexibility.

  • Dual Deck — The DDJ-SX enables two tracks to be controlled at the same time, allowing scratching or setting and recalling hot cues on both tracks as if they were performed on a single track.
  • Slip Mode — While activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a performance loop, scratch or hot cue and resumes audible playback when the loop, scratch, or hot cue operation is ended, creating smoother and more seamless transitions.
  • FX Mode — Provides access to two types of effect modes, Multi FX and Single FX
  • Multi FX Mode — Allows multiple effects to be applied simultaneously
  • Single FX Mode — Allows a single effect to be controlled with numerous parameters

Additional Functions
  • Up to eight hot cue points can be set for each deck
  • Vertical waveform display for fast tempo syncing
  • Customized Control Layout Works as Great as it Looks

The Pioneer DDJ-SX can quickly access the multitude of features Serato DJ offers through its buttons, knobs, sliders and performance pads. Thoughtfully laid out to deliver the best DJ controller experience, its buttons and knobs are designed to match the applicable software functions perfectly:

  • Performance Pads — Pioneer added eight “performance pads” located below the jog wheel for four different functionalities — HOT CUE, ROLL, SLICER and SAMPLER. Each soft-touch rubber pad illuminates in blue to enable users to quickly tap the pad(s) for each effect, with the output volume varying depending on the strength of each tap.
  • Large Jog Wheels — The jog wheels on the DDJ-SX are enlarged for more precise scratching and mixing. The resistance for each jog wheel was fined tuned to provide users with the best “feel” and the shortest latency. The unit also features an “On Jog” display located on the center of each wheel to provide instantaneous visual feedback of playback status and the position of playing tracks.
  • 4-Channel Mixer — The DDJ-SX features an independent 4-channel mixer that can be used with other external sources such as turntables. Its master level meter provides instantaneous sound level adjustment as well as independent output controls with a display indicator for each channel when used as a standalone mixer.
  • Aluminum Finish — The DDJ-SX sports an aluminum top panel and a brushed aluminum finish for the jog wheels for optimal look and feel.

Additional Features
  • Serato DJ Software — The new Serato software is bundled with the DDJ-SX for an easy out-of-the-box experience.
  • Multiple Connection Options — The DDJ-SX offers dual CD and phono/line inputs for external devices as well as two microphone inputs, two master outputs (XLR and RCA) and a booth out terminal.
  • High Quality Audio — A low-jitter clock and high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) are used for accurate audio playback
  • Built-in Sound Card - equipped with a high quality audio interface
  • Needle Search — Users can immediately jump to a specific part of a music track with a simple touch of the Needle Search pad.
  • Adjustable Cross-fader Curve to suit any type of mixing style.
  • Channel Fader Start — Enables the use of the channel fader to control and play/cue tracks.

      Need a controller? An MPC? A mixer too?... Done, done and done! This is the Cadillac of controllers and will be the last one you'll ever need. If you haven't tried one yet, you really must get down to your Sam Ash store and touch this thing. The wheels and pads alone are enough for you to fall in love. With so many different ways to mix and create music, how can having so much flexability and ease be a bad thing. Serato is also included so if you're an inspiring or even a professional DJ, you'll love this thing. Pioneer is setting the bar really high with this. I feel for the competition. Simply amazing!!!

        The Pioneer DDJ-SX is the best dj controller available on the market. It is lightweight and has great pioneer quality. The integration with Serato DJ is flawless. It has 8 sensitive pads that allow you to trigger back samples, hot cues, loops and more. I love the fact that it even has a volume control for the samples. It has 4 rca inputs allowing you to use it as a 4 channel mixer. You can also mix 4 decks on Serato DJ. The Pioneer DDJ-SX is the best controller available on the market today.

            Top quality controller from Pioneer. Mix 4 channels simultaneously and easily execute effects and loops while playing. Perfect for traveling DJs trying to keep their setup simple, or for those who want 4 separate decks with a fraction of the space. Connects through USB to be used with Serato. Portable and durable. A great investment from Pioneer.

              I've used this out several times at gigs now. It replaces my CDJs and Rane 62 mixer. It feels great like my CDJs and runs Serato DJ like my 62 so its seemless to go between. I didn't think that I would find a controller that I would be content with over my CDJs. It is really easy to record your mix because it's so easy to break it out and play. No connecting a bunch of cables to practice or record a mixtape.

              It is actually easier to get around on the SX than my 62 to be honest. If I'm using alot more cue points and ESPECIALLY FX. Bottom line, the SX lets me have more space in my car and still perform like I have my "big" system. You're awesome Pioneer! Thank you!

                This product can be used not for only going on gigs, you can do recording sessions because it is a mixer, an MPC and an interface in one console. The Serato program is very versatile and user friendly with the console. I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music!

                      Right out of the box, this was the most impressive DJ controller I have used. The quality of the pads really sets this apart from other controllers. The mixer section is laid out very intuitively and the controls feel very good. The amount of different ways to control and alter your tracks is more than enough reason to buy this. Well done, Pioneer.
